Re: Hello everyone.. need advice!

I don't currently use cloth (boys are 7 & 9), but I am also due in August and decided to go super simple this time. I knew I wanted to just do prefolds, but I had to research covers. I settled on Econobums and Flips as they are reasonably priced, one-size, and had great reviews. I also still have wool covers left over from years ago that I plan on using.

It wasn't because my stash wasn't big enough to handle it....my diaper pails would fill up THAT quick. Sometimes I had one pail liner full of dirty dipes in the laundry room waiting for another load of regular clothes to come out of the washer, another one in the dryer (in a load of dipes) getting ready to use, and the third one IN the pail catching what was getting dirty at the moment. That only happened though if both kids had shots and had "side effects" from them if you kwim.
My DS (almost 2) is a super pooper who regularly goes 2-3 times a day and he is a HW. So we still go through a ton of diapers. Between that and a limited number of nb diapers, I suspect I may be washing every day at times after the baby gets here. I have 2 dozen preemie pfs, 2 dozen nb pfs and a dozen infant pfs plus 7-8 covers. I am picky about only liking pfs that actually fit, though (or I was with DS since he pooped 12-15 times a day as a nb and I hated running out of covers. We also have 12 nb Simplex though, so we should be good.
